Stop the Presses—Wait, Don’t

3 book covers, The Sphynx Who Stole Christmas, Birth of the Black Orchids, and Louise Penny's A World of Curiosities. Text announcing the publication of Sphynx and a book giveaway

The Sphynx Who Stole Christmas is going to press this week. To celebrate, I’m giving away books. Sign up for my newsletter for a chance to win. If you’re already subscribed, you’re already entered. The drawing will take place at the end of December.

I cannot say exactly what day Sphynx will be available. The publishing process is a well-oiled machine, like used french fry grease poured in your car’s engine. Even the digital pipeline seems to suffer from supply chain issues. Maybe the electron crop was bad this year. Because I want you to receive your prize soon, I’m giving away other books:

A World of Curiosities, Louise Penny’s latest Three Pines mystery (hardcover)

Birth of the Black Orchids, my first mystery in this series (paperback large print)

‘Tis the season to curl up with a good book. I hope it’s one of these.

I’m sorry to have to limit the giveaway to U.S. readers only, because of delivery challenges. For international readers, I’ll try to arrange for digital books.
